THE NAIRA (NGN)The Naira (NGN) is the monetary unit of Nigeria. The Naira is divided into 100 kobo and was introduced in 1973, when the country decimalized its monetary system and substituted the Naira for the Nigerian Pound (the country used the British pound sterling when it was a British colony), which was divided into Shillings. The Central Bank of Nigeria has the sole authority to issue banknotes and coins. Click here to see our exchange rates page to convert your local currency to NGN.
Why Nigerian Naira (NGN)?
The Nigerian Naira has been chosen by OnlineNaira to be the default African Currency for a number of reasons:
As at the time of updating this page, over 90% of OnlineNaira members are from Nigeria and it becomes logical therefore to use the Nigerian Naira as the main currency for the purposes of providing a viable payment gateway to the whole of Africa. While it has become necessary to convert other African currencies to NGN, please be assured that members will not lose money converting to Naira. We have provided today's rates so that other currencies can be converted to the Naira - NGN.
- Nigeria has the largest population in Africa and is the largest economy in Africa.
- OnlineNaira started in Nigeria before moving into Ghana and then into South Africa, Kenya and other countries in Africa.
- The dollar does not belong in Africa and we must only use it when its absolutely necessary.
OnlineNaira was established April 2011.
